Excerpt from Relative Danger by Terry Spear
Thomas's worn denims hugged his body, the way McKenna wished she could. As usual, he wore cowboy boots. No hat to go with it? And a T-shirt--no western shirt this time?
Her heart quickened at the memory of him. Thomas in western wear, the image emblazoned in her mind, as she thought of a cowboy riding the range...rather, riding her. The ice blue T-shirt stretched across his broad shoulders and chest gave her pause.
She lifted her gaze to his face and found him giving her the same kind of rabid inspection. No matter what she felt physically for him, he was strictly off-limits. Once bitten, twice shy kind of thing. And he'd definitely bitten hard enough to make her shy away from any more of his attention.
He stopped in front of her and shoved his hands in his jeans, tight jeans pockets, which only emphasized the bulge in the center of his denims. "You're late, McKenna."
Her hackles rose. He knew how much it bothered her to be late for things, and she figured he'd said it to get a rise out of her--his way of getting her to talk to him anyway he could. But she wasn't about to take Thomas's bait.
